ENTER THE GALLERY

Welcome to Sealaska Heritage Institute’s 10th biennial Juried Art Show and Competition

This event showcasing Northwest Coast Native art is held in conjunction with Celebration, a major four-day dance-and-culture festival in Juneau hosted by Sealaska Heritage Institute. SHI sponsors the art show in an effort to reaffirm the greatness of Northwest Coast art traditions and to promote the continued evolution of those traditions in Southeast Alaska.

The goals of the show are:
• to encourage and enhance the creation and production of Southeast Alaska Native objects of artistic value which are becoming rare;
• to stimulate and enhance the quality of artistic work among our Native artisans; and
• to encourage the development of new forms of art of purely Southeast Alaska Native form and design.
